A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

Centrally located on a 375-acre site in the southern San Joaquin Valley, California State University, Bakersfield is a continuously growing comprehensive regional university that is committed to transforming the lives of its students and community through its established excellence in academia, diversity, service, and community engagement since its founding in 1965. The faculty across the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) fully accredited University is world-class, with nearly 75% holding terminal degrees in their respective fields. An NCAA Division I school, CSUB has competed successfully in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) since 2012. NCAA Division I competition is but one important aspect of a growing and vibrant student-life experience.


Which of the following features are present on campus and which are included within the institutional boundary?:
Present? Included?
Agricultural school No No
Medical school No No
Other professional school with labs and clinics (e.g. dental, nursing, pharmacy, public health, veterinary) Yes Yes
Satellite campus Yes No
Farm larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares No No
Agricultural experiment station larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares No No
Hospital No No

The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:

Antelope Valley (our satellite campus) data is categorized differently from our main campus' data. They have different waste haulers, energy companies, etc., which makes the data collection for the satellite campus a separate pursuit that we could not accomplish with this report.
